The Southern Alps, particularly the Rhône valley, Ticino and the Engadine, are drier than the Northern Alps. Here is more about weather and climate. Last Winter has been warm, but the Engadine for example, got lots of snow. There has been rain (= snow in higher elevations) recently, so whether or not trails are still snow covered can be very different in each area. Lower is better, South facing slopes are better than North facing ones, and later in June is better than earlier. You'd better check with the local tourist agency or at the cable car stations before heading for high altitude trails. In any case there should still be lots of trails that are accessible. The weather during your stay is what is most important. If that's fine, you'll have a great vacation. The key is to adjust your plans to what is possible once you are there.
